President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on his 65th birthday.

The president’s congratulatory message was issued on Tuesday in Abuja by Femi Adesina, the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.

Mr. Buhari said he joined “all members of the APC, political and business associates of the Asiwaju of Lagos, his friends and family, in celebrating another milestone in the life of the great leader”.

Mr. Buhari noted that Mr. Tinubu’s foray into politics had ushered in a better understanding of building consensus to achieve historical feats, like unseating an incumbent government.

“Tinubu has raised the bar for many political leaders across the country as a two-term governor of Lagos State, and also bequeathed a style of leadership that completely altered the landscape of the commercial capital,” he said.

The president recalled his “pleasant and intellectually enriching encounters” with Mr. Tinubu over the years.

According to him, as the former governor turns 65, the nation still stands to gain more from him.

He also re-affirmed that the nation had benefitted “a lot from the personal sacrifices, political experience and intellectual foresight of the APC chieftain”.

President Buhari prayed that the almighty God would grant the Asiwaju good health, longer life and more wisdom to serve his country and humanity.

    Tinubu is 65 years old, so he was a senator at 23 years old? Liars

    • KolapoAhmed

      2007 to date is 43 years abi,well maybe you made mistake, Tinubu was 42years old when he became senator. Thank you.

    • Sadiq Yakubu

      You are nothing but a moron.He was a senator in 1993.So from 93 to 2017=42yrs abi.In fact,just go and die in shame

      • Christian Igbinaduwa

        You are a dead guy. The worst things happening to Nigeria is having you together with my race

      • Christian Igbinaduwa

        Tinubu has done a lot in Nigeria, Not sure. Because he does not see that Nigeria is too ripe for separation. We are like crowd. He has done a lot for Yoruba making you second fiddle to Hausas and very proud of it. A northern police officers said he will kill 200 people if Buhari die. I suppose if your senses are upright, there is a voice needed and it is certainly wouldn’t be from South West to succeed in Nigeria

  • Christian Igbinaduwa

    Another betrayer, Traitor and what it might be jinx in progress. unfortunately he is destroying loads of lives and people. Asiwaju indeed.

    • Sadiq Yakubu

      Mention one person from your miserable race that can be compared with Asiwaju?You must be a bastard

      • Christian Igbinaduwa

        The first thing that should be mention is the fact you like to hail people even if you are dying. There that blindness in your race. Where are you living? in the UK, perhaps he help you to get a visa. It is all that count in your blind race. You will never open your eyes. Maybe your population is too much. You are blind and deaf

    A northern police officers said he will kill 200 people if Buhari die. Ask if Buhari who does not even apply ordinary milk to his skin is worth even the Donkey he is suppose to be rearing as a Normand person were is not suppose to be British Army/colony, The Yoruba’s like Asiwaju, Obasanjo etc who does not know where they are going in that Nigeria. We are not suppose to be together. This is different from the fact that maybe someone says hatred. No. I do not hate anyone, but it is not working and will never work. South-East do know where they want to go, South-South do know where they want to go, Even the North knows where they want to go, Only South-West are yet to figure out where or what they want to do.
    The North want to join the North African deserts and North African into Magreb, But they want to arm themselves with oil, So let go discover Oil in the North. But the South-West(Yoruba) want to wait for Buhari, maybe he will die and Osinbajo will take over. Dreams. That’s is bad dreams. The reason we are still together is that Yoruba has not faction what they want, best Idea, I would suggest is for them to ask Britain to make the Yoruba land British Territory. That is a step
